Royals recall RHP Alec Mills

The Kansas City Royals announced today that they have recalled pitcher Alec Mills from Omaha (AAA). The right-handed pitcher will be in uniform (#63) for tonight's game against the Oakland Athletics.

Mills, 24, made his Major League debut for the Royals on May 18, pitching 0.2 innings out of the bullpen in a 5-2 loss to the Red Sox. In 24 games (23 starts) combined between Northwest Arkansas (AA) and Omaha this season, he went 5-5, while compiling a 3.22 ERA with 122 strikeouts in 125.2 innings. The righty was named a Texas League All-Star this season, but did not pitch in the game after being promoted to Triple-A on June 16. He was Kansas City's 22nd-round selection in the 2012 MLB First-Year Player Draft out of the University of Tennessee-Martin.
